Going Solar Incentives2022-08-16T01:52:38+00:00

There are federal, state and other incentives to help you pay for or benefit from your solar system.

Going Solar Incentives

Federal, state, and local governments understand the importance of sustainable energy and the high costs associated with traditional power sources. That’s why, in many cases, incentives can save customers well over 50% on the cost of energy.

Federal Tax Credits

The solar investment tax credit (ITC) is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the income taxes that a homeowner claiming the credit would otherwise pay the federal government. The ITC is based on 30% on solar installed in 2022-2032. On leased systems, SunPower® collects this incentive and passes the savings on to the customer. Don’t wait, prices for solar equipment are on the rise!

How solar works to power the grid and earn you credits.

State Incentives

Currently, in both California and Nevada, customers who install solar panels on their homes are eligible for net metering programs. Net energy metering (NEM) is a billing mechanism where utility companies provide credits to homeowners for the extra electricity their solar panels generate and add to the electricity grid. Ask us about other state or local incentives.

Solar builds home value

Build Home Value

A solar system is a capital improvement which adds to the property’s value. You can may sell your home faster and for more than homes without solar. Your investment in solar also adds to its tax basis. Upon selling, the tax basis investment can be deducted from the sale price, which reduces the profit. This lessens the sales taxes and you may avoid capital gains taxes.

*Ask your representative about which incentive you’re eligible to receive. Please consult a tax advisor on your ability to claim these nonrefundable tax credits.

Frequently asked questions.

We’re here to answer any questions or concerns you might have on your path to solar. Here are some common questions. If you don’t find your answers here, we’re a phone call away!

What’s the advantage of a single warranty on the whole system all from one manufacturer?2021-12-12T02:29:01+00:00

A working solar system is composed of many components that work together to turn sunlight into usable power for your home. When you buy a SunPower® solar system with components that are designed and engineered to work together, you get the confidence of knowing that not only will the system work better together, but also that, should anything go wrong, you have one company, SunPower, backing your entire system – not just a component. If there is an issue, you have just one phone call to make.

Is length of coverage the most important part of a manufacturer’s warranty?2022-04-12T22:46:32+00:00

While length of coverage is important, it’s even more important to understand the comprehensiveness of the coverage. If something goes wrong with your system, is there one company to contact, or will you have to juggle amongst multiple manufacturer warranties, each of which is responsible for only one component of your system? Can you simply pick up the phone, or are you required to send a request for help to a P. O. Box in a distant location and wait an extended period of time to receive help? Will a representative inspect the system at your home, or will you be expected to ship a faulty component, at your expense? Do you have peace of mind knowing that your system will be fixed at no extra cost to you, or will you be billed for extra charges such as labor or shipping? These are only some of the considerations that SunPower took into account when creating our industry-leading Complete Confidence Warranty.

I saw that another brand offers a warranty that also provides 25 years of coverage. Is this the same as SunPower’s warranty?2022-04-12T22:49:17+00:00

Other manufacturers, many of which are new to manufacturing solar, are trying to catch up to SunPower’s 30+ years of dedicated solar experience and to the exceptional terms of our Complete Confidence Warranty. Many of them include hidden charges, such as shipping and labor costs, and don’t cover all of the many parts that go into a working solar system – panels, inverters, racking system, monitoring hardware and software. SunPower is the only company that offers one comprehensive product, power, and labor warranty for all components, because we engineered and designed the entire system.

Why does SunPower claim to have the best power warranty in the industry and how does this benefit me?2022-04-12T22:50:02+00:00

Over time, all solar panels lose a small amount of production, measured by its annual degradation rate. SunPower panels have the lowest degradation rate in the industry, validated by 3rd party testing. This means that a system with SunPower panels can produce more power and we back this with our 25 year Complete Confidence Warranty.

What does it mean when the product and power warranties reflect different lengths of coverage?2022-04-12T22:51:02+00:00

Homeowners should be suspicious of product and power warranties with separate lengths of terms. Product warranty covers defects and power warranty covers how much power the system is producing. What’s the value of a longer power warranty if the product generating the power breaks but is no longer warranted?

Why should I consider SunPower when some competitors offer higher wattages?2022-04-12T22:52:11+00:00

The “efficiency” of a solar panel determines how much power can be generated in the same amount of space (power density). Some solar panels try to compensate for lower efficiency by creating larger-sized panels to increase wattage, but this does not solve a homeowner’s power needs since the home’s available roof space cannot change. SunPower’s high efficiency panels produce more power in the same roof space than conventional panels.
